There's a nice Aussie term for you, Joe: 'Beaut!' No-one actually uses it any more, but I just wanted to add that Aussie touch to my praise for what turned out to be a great read! Of course, I've been reading your Dad's stuff for 30 years now, so I went out on a limb and bought HSB in one of those moments when you just kind of do things without thinking; on automatic - all i knew was that it was by Stephen King's son. I was happily rewarded - you certainly have your own voice and style and you write in a way that manages to breath new live into the old ghost-story cliches. I think it's because you inherently understand that it's all about caring for the characters (I actually 'teared-up' at the end there!) Anyway...lest I begin to sound like some trumped up book-critic - yeah - 'Beaut!' Looking forward to more...

Welcome to the board, EllSee. :)

If you want more, Joe's collection of stories called "20th Century Ghosts" has just been released.

Hope to see you more- we have a few Aussies here. :)
